Has anybody else been watching the audition/application videos? I read that my school sixth form choir had entered so thought i'd see if their video was up but it's not, they're through to the final 60 though

Only Men Aloud have my favourite song choices so far. What does everyone else think? If anyone else has actually had a look.

I just watched the one that was on a couple of hours ago

Thought it was really good

I wish my school had a choir that wasn't so traditional and was more...modern :p:

The Filey Fisherman's choir sang at my uncle's wedding a few years back, they were awesome should of got through.

But that gospel group, the one with the male vocalist were amazing! Sang Rule the World.

I thought Only Men Aloud were one of the best, and the gospel choir with the male and female solos. I hated the women that directed the choir in dresses, and I didn't think the birmingham choir should have gone through in the end.

I think their last 15 choir choice was ridiculous.

Put through some awful choirs, and missed out on way better ones.

Such as Out Of The Blue.

Just watching this at the moment, but I think that a lot of them are just solo singers with backing singers. Thats not a choir! :'(

ok, the judges have just said that :P

I really liked Hear Me Now (I think that's their name?). I only managed to watch the highlights from their first song but I watched the second song and I really enjoyed it.

I think Last Choir Standing is a great programme and it will make people see that choirs aren't just for religious people in churches. Choirs will become more popular after this, the same as ballroom dancing becoming popular thanks to Strictly Come Dancing.

Oh dear... I really thought Sense of Sound deserved to go through rather than Revelations. Their song was pretty technically difficult, and very well sung. It seemed that good TV one through over excellent singing...

Still... Bath Male Choir FTW!

Meh... I have something of a penchant for Male Choir singing... presumably because I sing in one...

As do I :p:

But the Welsh choir, Only Men Aloud! are much better.

City of Bath choir were poor in yesterday's show, they didn't sound unified as one choir at all.

No... their consonants were all out; there were "s"s and "c"s everywhere!

Only Men Aloud are pretty amazing - if there's any justice in this competition they'll win outright. Although I thought that the Oxford choir, Last Minute, where pretty amazing, and they didn't make it to the final six.

Last Minute didn't make it probably because they're from Oxford. The judges probably thought that as they're from Oxford the public would see them as upper-class snobs etc, and as such didn't put them through

But have you heard of Out of The Blue? Much better than Last Minute, who're basically a copycat choir but nowhere near as good.

I have heard of Out of the Blue, and it took me a while to realise where... but they were on "The Slammer" a few months ago... :o:

They were pretty incredible.

And for the record, the slammer is a fine example of televisual brilliance...
